Okay so i got a new half link chain and i fitted it perfectly no slack, the drivetrain is all in line, everything is perfect but everytime i pedal it sounds like it's rubbing against the driver and makes a pretty loud noise, i'm running 25-9 if that helps, please help wink

Maybe one of the pins is too far that way? Try to find out which one is doing it, push it the other way.

i don't think it's that all the pins are fine and are in place it's like everytime i'm pedaling even if it's quarter crank turn it sounds like the chain is being forced on the driver and it's making a horrible noise, i tension is fine, no tight spots, the allignment is fine what else could it be?

Well, what chain is it? I had the same problem today.. I have a MDS sprocket and the shadow v2 chain and the master pin thing was too big and scraped my driver and sprocket so that might be the problem.

Ohhh, so it just basically just scraping the crap out of the driver? I have no clue what to do about that I think some chains just do it. I have no clue.. Sorry i couldn't help.

Could be just the chain breaking in. I mean, it is brand new after all.

it could be that i agree but i mean if i pedal forward just a little you can hear a constant loud noise from my driver like it's being forced to move, everything is ok, allignment, tension, axle, hub, chain links, do u think it will just go away after i ride for a while?

that's good to know is it just a case of riding it to wear the new chain in it sounds like the driver is being forced making a horrible noise here's a pic to show it's on properlyPhoto

Are you sure it's the driver? Were those scratches on the sprocket before you got the new chain as it looks like the links are being forced onto the sprocket..

Its the driver being pulled foward and the internals sotting sidways, loosen your chain a bit so it not pulling it so hard and tighten the drivers lock nut

it's simple to find from where comes those noises
before get the new chain did you listened those noises?

Just check if the driver bearings and pawls are fine, if yes, you don't need a new driver.
Just check up everything that could be affecting your drive train to create suck noises.

I would just take it all apart and make sure everything is in place and ad a little grease and loosen the chain a little.
if that doesn't work just smack it with a wrench a few times that always works for me.

Check your chain alignment, most likely it would be the cause, having your sprocket driver not line up properly can cause grinding, crunching of the chain which will wear your sprocket, chain and driver out much quicker....

the smacking it with the wrench is probably the safest move to make, i like to keep a rock on my at all times to bash parts of my bike to get them to work. Gotta be atleast cricket ball size though

By looking at ur sprocket from the picture u posted. I see 1 tooth that is almost completely chipped away and a a few more that are getting smaller then the others from wear and tear. Looks like the need to be replaced. If the driver also looks like that then chain is not make full engagement with all the tooths then it can be skipping and have sloppy play when u pedal. Make sure u have no tight chain links. Also see if the chain is rubbing away the paint from the drive, right next to but not on the tooth.
